Hall of Fame Selection Thread

Selections to be announced at 4 pm Pacific. Finalists are: Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Cris Carter, Dermontti Dawson, Richard Dent, Chris Doleman, Marshall Faulk, Charles Haley, Curtis Martin, Andre Reed, Willie Roaf, Ed Sabol, Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharper and of course Cortez Kennedy. Senior nominees are Chris Hanburger and Les Richter.

Tez deserves enshrinement. The one reason I think that stands above all else is that in 1992, Kennedy was the best player in the NFL. His 1992 season was among if not the best single season by a defensive tackle in the history of the NFL. I prefer true greatness however shortly lived over sustained quality. Too many things can derail a career. Too many of the greatest of the greats in all fields endured short peaks, often short lives. The Hall is a hall of history, and no history of the NFL is complete without one of its greatest players.

Do the right thing, voters.
